Team HRC just off the podium in frustrating MXGP of Thailand

Team HRC’s pairing of Evgeny Bobryshev and Gautier Paulin endured a frustrating MXGP of Thailand, with Bobby just missing out on an overall podium by two points, and Gautier’s race two assault being derailed when his bike was hit on the opening lap.

As the temperature at the Suphanburi Motorsport Land venue soared to 37 degrees Celsius, with an oppressive humidity of 58 per cent, there was a lot of Honda red at the front of the pack at the start of race one.

Honda Gariboldi’s Tim Gajser on the HRC factory machine slotted into second, whilst Bobryshev and Paulin were embroiled in the pack and emerged in 8th and 14th respectively, but it was Japanese Kei Yamamoto on the CRF450R who took his first holeshot. The Team HRC duo faired well in the heat and fought through the pack valiantly, Bobby climbing to an eventual fourth and Gautier, who was the fastest man on track in the closing stages of the race, took the flag in seventh.

Race two was almost a reversal of positions with Bobby exiting turn one in tenth but Gautier sitting strongly in fourth. However, frustration came again for the Frenchman when Valentin Guillod’s bike got out of shape in front of him exiting the last corner, and as the rear snapped back into line it cleaned out the front wheel of his Honda CRF and put him on the ground.

A seventh place for Bobryshev meant that he missed the podium by just two points, finishing fourth overall in the Grand Prix, whilst Paulin recovered to ninth but was let ruing what could have been.
